Investigative journalist Nicky Hager takes a look at the history of eavesdropping in New Zealand—what our intelligence agencies did (and didn’t do), to whom, when and why.
Nicky Hager is an investigative journalist and the author of seven books. He specialises in hard-to-document subjects, such as military and intelligence agencies, public relations activities and the unseen sides of politics. His books include Dirty Politics: How attack politics is poisoning New Zealand’s political environment (2014) and Secret Power: New Zealand’s role in the international spy network (1996).
